Customer Reviews

We were a party of 6 pax and took the Franschhoek Wine Tram - Yellow Line on Friday 25th October 19 Even though the weather was very wet we all had a great experience especially from our 2 visiting friends from Australia The timing of all the pick-ups from various wine farms were absolutely spot on throughout the day All the staff were very polite and informative A great way to explore various wine farms in the Franschhoek Wine Valley without driving Would highly recommend this excursion to any visitors to Franschhoek - Chris Brothers - One Turn Trading


It was so lovely to experience the wine tram with my hubby on our honeymoon! We had wonderful hosts and the staff went over and above to accommodate us as we missed our one pick up time, we ended up being on the bus with the blue/ red lines but with a smile they took us to one of our next stop so we could get back on track with our yellow line route! - Natasha Van Der Schyff


It was a fun experience! We managed to visit 5 vineyards, including a long stop for lunch. Also, the ride in the tram itself is something I'd definitely recommend. - Nir Idisis


Really great experience! - Angeliki Carvounes


Excellent day! I recommend a day on the tram to everyone who visits the Cape! - Sue McCleave
